Menu Planning Monday

Menu Planning Monday

Macaroni Monday
Lasagna
Again, I didn't end up making this last week.  Last time I did make it,  I added beef and my big boys ate it well.  And it is a favorite of Camden's.  Plus it is super easy.  We have a baseball game Monday night so it will be a quick, easy meal to have.
Carrot Sticks


Taco Tuesday
I am going to brown a pound of beef on Monday for the lasagna (and use only half), so I will have the other half to use for tacos on Tuesday.  Last time I made tacos, I improvised on the seasoning.  Instead of using a traditional seasoning packet, I used a combination of spices (chili, garlic and onion powders and ground cumin) with a little water, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup.  My husband said, "What's different about this meat?"  He loved it!  I wish I could remember the amounts of each I used.  As my mom would say, "A certain amount." And I also plan to add some squash into the mix.  I learned that trick from Rachel at Architecture of a Mom.
